Learnig Master from District 51

Led by Past International President Pat Johnson, Learning Masters will work hand-in-hand with the development team as representatives of the membership at large. They will:
  • Share their experience of learning through Toastmasters
  • Provide input about what they would like to see in a Revitalized Education Program
  • Validate assumptions of learning ideas and tools as the project progresses
  • Be the first to try out the updated program as beta testers
The Learning Masters team was planned to include 280 volunteers — 20 from each region.
More than 3,100 applications were received. The selection process was highly competitive and many qualified applicants could not be selected because of the limited number of available positions.
The selection committee chose members of varying education levels, leadership experience, time in Toastmasters and professional backgrounds. The wide-ranging experiences of these Learning Masters will help ensure the development of the revitalized education program takes into consideration the needs of all members.

Learning Masters will complete the following activities:
  • Answer monthly 5- to 10-minute surveys regarding educational materials
  • Respond to questions posted monthly on an online discussion board
  • Share information on how communication and leadership skills are developed in your club
  • Visit at least three clubs to observe differences in how members learn
Throughout the course of the project, this webpage will be updated with details about the work the Learning Masters are doing. In the coming months, profiles of the selected Learning Masters will be posted, so you can learn more about the representatives from your region.

Meyya strike it Well......

It was a battle of 3 immediate past division governors plus another past division governor. Contestants across Peninsular Malaysia were all set for the elusive title.

S.Meyyappa Manickam (Meyya), whom was the flag bearer for Division B evaluation contest, was already have expectations, as Division B has won 2nd place in evaluation contest for the past 3 terms and never in the history a past division governor has won a podium in the district contest.

Just the night before the contest, Meyya got rewarded with his part term hard-work for his President Distinguished Division for term 2012/13. With the spirit and encouragement by Division members and friends from other division geared him for the next day.

Meyya was speech contestant number 2 out of 10 contestant. Being 2nd contestant, he will have 5 minutes for preparation as the same for the rest and additional 3 minutes, where he will be quarantined which can be also used for rehearsal.

As his name was called to present by contest chair, Azizah Hassan, he went up with gusto and cool-down himself with smile. he started with a shock statement of "CRAP", then went on with explanation of the acronym CRAP which was clear purpose, rational organisation, attention grabbing and pause usage.

While he peppered the evaluation with humor, his confidence increased as he got the audiences' support.

He finished strong with a conclusion which relates back to theme of the convention and district, STARS.  As he concluded, it was a arousing applause from the audience.

Now, the results time, as all contestants were eagerly waiting for it. The Chief Judge, Wendy Wong, handed over the results to contest chair. Unfortunately, there were 1 time disqualification.

The 3rd place winner goes to Kyle Tham from KPMG TMC division W whom were contestant number 9.

And the 2nd place goes to S.MEYYAPPA MANICKAM. All the supporters were already greeting and congratulating him, before even he goes to the stage.

The champion was from IEM TMC, Division E, whom were also the contestant number 10.

It's another achievement for Meyya and Division B. Nevertheless, the hunt for 1st District winner from Division B still goes on.

Another Division B representative from Division B, Mirosha Somasundram, got a good exposure by facing seasoned members i.e Loghendran, Swee Keat, Ramakrishnan and Chen Choon.

Redesigned Dashboards


Fellow Toastmasters of Division B,
It's my final greetings and let me pen it with a strong, happy and winner's feelings.
After 365 days of struggle, sweat and strides, finally it was a sweet finishing. And yes, it's true, Division B became President Distinguished Division for the term 2012/2013 and it's the 7th consecutive time. Of course, 1st by a Male Division Governor and by an GEN-Y in Division B.
Thank you to all my area governors (Albert, Sok Teng, Saw Bee, Joyce Loh, Joyce Hue, and Ai Ling) whom joined hands with me to bring the division to greater heights. No to forget the division council members too whom assisted to their best of ability to hold firm on the division i.e Emil, Victor, Henry, Kwoon Yuen, Jessy, Suhana, Julian, Richard, Stephanie, Vince and Burney. Our synergy, synchronization and correlation made the division and it's activities to be well known among the district members.
Also, thank you to District officers and my advisers whom were always available to give their input (too many to list down*;) winking), whom were supporting me right from the day I was nominated till the final date by giving back additional mental push, assisting in demonstration meetings and role players in Division activities.
Finally, the Division B members itself whom were the nucleus of the division and every move/action reflected the Division's progress.
It was never a easy sail for me right from the date I got nominated (on 31 January 2012) till the final date of the term end (on 30 June 2013). All the stumbling locks I faced became my stepping Stone rather that stopping stone to reach the pinnacle. Even when, there was challenges to take away my concentration towards the finishing line, I stayed strong with my past experience which enabled me to focus till I could see the success.
What have we achieved:
